It’s finally Friday and so that means that I finally get to share this amazing DIY felt flower wedding bouquet with you! I’ve been working on the petal patterns for months, swooned over different felt colors and had to gently persuade my assistant Shea to be today’s model bride and it was all worth it because I’m obsessed, to say the very least. The last felt wedding bouquet I shared was cute, but I think that this one might even hold a candle to actual flowers. While we were shooting in the park a few ladies actually thought they were real! Making all these flowers isn’t an “easy” task and it will take you hours to create enough blooms (probably took me 20ish total) – but it’s an absolutely perfect project for the creative, eclectic bride that wants something unique. This bouquet will last forever meaning it will make a wonderful wedding keepsake! I’ve been so genuinely touched by our fabulous DIY brides who made my old felt flower bouquet and shared pictures of them on social… and I can’t wait to see more!


In talking about handmade flowers – we are singing the praises of felt. Unlike paper, felt flowers are thick, sturdy and can withstand all that your wedding day could possibly throw at them. Paper can rip and crumple in a flash – but not felt! There is something so old-school crafty about felt… and I just love it. So without further ado, here is this weeks absolutely beautiful – felt flower wedding bouquet.

Add One Flower At A Time

I started this bouquet holding the 3 large protea and then added the other flowers from there. Once you get to a place where you are happy with the way things look – wrap with a piece of floral wire to secure and keep moving.

Keep Building

Keep adding more flowers, wrapping with wire and arranging your pretty felt blooms until you’re happy.

Finish The Stems

Once your arrangement is complete, trim all the wire stems to match. In my last bouquet I showed that you can wrap all the wires in felt and cover the entire bunch with ribbon. But I decided to leave these wires bare! Wrap the section of wire that you’ll be holding with a piece of green felt and secure with hot glue.

Add Ribbons

Pretty flowing ribbons are all the rage so I added two cream ribbons and then tied a bow with the peach striped ribbon… and that’s all there is to arranging this beautiful bunch! The making of the actual flowers is the hard part :-)
